The Two Princesses Who Fell In Love

[This is from a collection of family-friendly LGBT poems I’d been working on. In honor of pride month, I figured I’d share this one. I think we could use more stories about girls finding their princess charming, don’t you? ❤ 🙂 ]

.

There once were two princesses

Who fell in love

Princess Mae liked to tame dragons

Who breathed fire in the sky above

.

Princess Lotus liked to garden

And cared for her flowers all day

I’m guessing that you’re wondering

How she met Princess Mae

.

One day Lotus was watering Daisies

The sun was hot, but she didn’t tire

But then a dragon swooped from the sky

And started breathing fire!

.

She had big, scaly wings

And great sharp claws

She didn’t follow any rules

She didn’t follow any laws

.

Fire drifted toward the ground

But Lotus wasn’t scared

She just wanted her roses

And her buttercups to be spared

.

The dragon was about to land

On a patch of blue tulips

But Princess Mae said, “Stop right there,”

And put her hands on her hips

.

She held a silver shield

And a golden lasso

The dragon tried to get away

But she was far too slow

.

Mae captured the dragon

And gave her a potion to make her sleep

“Don’t worry,” the princess said to Lotus,

“I’ll take her to the mountains, then set her free.”

.

Lotus gave Mae a great big hug

And thanked her for saving her flowers

The next thing she knew, the sun was setting

And the two had been talking for hours

.

They talked about dragons and flowers

They talked about parties and tea

They talked about battles and kingdoms

They talked about magic and the sea

.

Lotus thought Mae was the bravest,

Smartest, most beautiful princess of all

She asked if she would like to have tea

In the morning, just after dawn

.

Lotus agreed, then used her magic lasso

To take the dragon away

And, as promised, the two of them had tea

The very next day

.

After tea, Mae showed her the garden

Where they laughed and sang and ran

And that is how the love story

Of Princess Mae and Princess Lotus began.

Tears and Mermaids

Life isn’t always sugarplums and rainbows

I wish I could always escape into winter

Wonderlands, ice castles and dragon kingdoms

Falling stars and oceans filled with mermaids

.

Even fantasy can’t always take away

The struggles and sadness that come day

To day. Sometimes tears are the closest you

Get to a magical, mermaid-filled sea.
